Travel reviews by The Hoopoes from London

A wonderful trip!

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 29-Sep-2007 and 14-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had a great holiday, with the combination of action packed safari followed by complete relaxation on the beach working well.

This is our second trip with Expert Africa and both times I have been impressed with the level of personal knowledge and expertise of the advisors as well as their honesty. I have found this a huge help when making decisions about where bto stay and also I have been well prepared for each of the venues. Many thanks.

Suggestions to help us improve: The only comment i have is the reference in your note to the recommended use of travellers cheques for making payment in Tanzania/Zanzibar. Our experience was that most of the hotels/restaurants would not accept them due to the time taken for banks to transfer the money to them. It would be useful to adjust this information in your notes.
